Floating Markets in Vietnam


The day begins very early on the Mekong Delta in South Vietnam. Farmers from the region awake before dawn to load their boats with the fruit and vegetables they harvested the day before. Every morning these boats meet to form some of the world’s largest floating markets. 
 

Headed to market

 
Local residents, as well as restaurants and stores, pull their boats up beside the anchored market boats and purchase the day’s produce that will become tonight’s dinner.
